Looking Back at the Sweetest Schadenfreude Michigan Gave Us During the 2010s

The Schadenfreude, the Schadenfreude, the Schadenfreude.

Before we get into this, I feel compelled to roll out this disclaimer. There's something to be said about the human experience and how people derive satisfaction from the sadness of others. In an ideal world, the concept of Schadenfreude doesn't exist.

We don't live in that world, however.

When it comes to the Ohio State - Michigan football rivalry, there's certainly no love lost on either side. A foundation of bitterness was laid for most of us in the 1970s when Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler raged against each other in the Ten Year War.
